Teachers – Mrs Rachel Garner & Mrs Jo Tetlow

Summer Term 2017 –  Minibeasts

Where has the year gone? In the final half term of this school year Class 1 will be looking at Minibeasts. Here is our topic information – we hope it gives you an idea of the things we’ll be doing and learning about this half term. (Click to enlarge)

This half term we will be making trips to Dawlish Nature Reserve and Buckfast Butterflies and Otter Sanctuary. Details to follow.

We continue to be very well supported by parents sparing a half hour here and there to hear our children read in the mornings; thank you if you have been able to help – it makes a notable difference in readiness to read.

We are in constant need of junk modelling materials so please send in any boxes, cartons and tubes. We’ll make good use of them. Thank you for the extra large boxes that you bring us too!

Before we know it, our Foundation Stage children will be Year 1s and where possible we are trying to prepare them for Year 1 expectations. If they don’t do already, it is a good idea to get your child to sort out their own bits and pieces in the morning – snack, water bottle, coat etc – so that they have greater independence, ready for September. If at all possible, see if they can build up to entering the class alone – obviously you are always welcome but it’s an idea to be as prepared as possible for the new school year in September.

Many thanks for this.

Please pop in to see us if you have any questions or if you need to tell us anything and do remember to let us know if someone new is collecting your child from school. We need to be informed of this so we are confident that we are sending your child home with the right person.

Thank you for your support

Jo Tetlow and Nicky Daniel
